Pediatric Therapy

Pediatric Physical, Speech & Occupational Therapy

We go above and beyond when it comes to the treatment of our young patients. Our goal is to make their experience as close to "play time" as possible. Our specially-trained physical therapists work one-on-one with pediatric patients to help them, encourage progress, and form lasting bonds. In addition, our physical therapists work to improve a child's gross motor ability (large muscle groups) which facilitate improved mobility, coordination and balance. We offer specialty evaluations and therapeutic interventions for the following areas:

  • Motor planning
  • Coordination and balance training
  • Mobility: transfers, floor mobility, ambulation
  • Neuromuscular conditions such as cerebral palsy
  • Orthopedic conditions such as torticollis, hip dysplasia, scoliosis and amputation
  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as decreased strength, muscle tone, muscle control, flexibility, joint motion, posture and endurance
  • Adaptive Equipment Assessment and training (Wheelchairs, walkers, standers, gait trainers, etc.)

For children with physical challenges, developmental delays, or sensory issues, pediatric physical and occupational therapy can improve the developmental and motor skills critical to living a more confident and independent life. Our compassionate, experienced therapists have experience working with a number of pediatric conditions and needs. Pediatric services are offered at select Ivy Rehab clinics.

  • Sensory processing / integration

Speech therapy for children:

Our speech-language pathologists have extensive experience working with children to improve feeding, communication, articulation, voice, fluency, and cognitive function. We also offer literacy evaluations for children. Our therapists who complete literacy evaluations have completed their training in speech-language pathology at the master's degree level. Beyond the aforementioned training, our professionals have had extensive training in language science, including reading and written language science, as well as in testing and measurement, as described by the American Speech Language Hearing Association and the International Dyslexia Association standards. We refer patients for a literacy evaluation when:

  • When a child is at least in kindergarten, preferably second semester, and struggles to learn letter names and sounds, memorize sight words, or sound out simple 3-letter words (bat, pet, log)
  • When a child is in first grade or up and is struggling unusually and unexpectedly to read, spell, and/or get ideas into sentences on paper
